The German boss is looking for things to do after leaving Borussia Dortmund.
Jurgen Klopp is one of the more popular football managers in Europe. The German has led Borussia Dortmund back to the top of their game. But after a disappointing season last term he has decided to move on. However, he has no desire to rush back into management and for now a return to management looks to be off the cards for next season.
Instead he will be taking some time out from the game to explore other avenues and learn more about the game, including taking a close look at Udinese. He is interested to see how the club is run by the Pozzo family, who also run recently promoted Watford.
His agent Marc Kosicke is quoted by SPOX as stating:
"He'd like to go and see how a club like Udinese is run, or he could go to America to understand how the championship works over there,"
Of course Watford fans should not get overly excited. He is clearly just hoping to enjoy his time out of the game, even if the links between him and a Pozzo-run club and a desire to manage in the Premier League is likely to have the more ambitious Watford fan foaming at the mouth.
Watford will embark on the 2015-16 Premier League season with a new boss, with Quique Sanchez Flores taking over from Slavisa Jokanovic.
